About the cut

Venison Haunch

The haunch is of the same deep, red meat as the rest of the deer and is cut from the top of the back legs. Wild meat is typically lean with lots of connective tissue. This requires skill to cut neatly away from the bone, before trimming the meat and neatly rolling for a spectacular, easy-carve roasting joint.

Tasting notes:
Region:

It's good to eat and enjoy heritage breed meat, showing farmers that there is a market for their herds and flocks and encourage them to rear them. Without a demand for their meat, many breeds would die out altogether. When intensive farming reigned unchallenged in the second half of the last century, many of our traditional breeds all but disappeared because they don't take kindly to factory farming. We want to change this and help more people realise that we need to safeguard the natural biodiversity of our farm animals and to demand meat with intrinsic flavour that comes from higher welfare systems. All of our meat fits that bill perfectly.
